Last year the Hunger Games marketing department created some Teutonic / Germanic influence propaganda posters that cut too close to a NAZI edge in the way that they simulated Third Reich info sheets.
This year they are going a bit Cold War Soviet Union. These 7 propaganda posters for [The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1](movie:446261) all have a retro-Soviet vibe going albeit with a more modern edge.
What makes these posters so cool are the way that they incorporate the area being homage into not only the scene but the fashion: the fisher woman has a garment pieced from fishing lines and nets; the transportation worker wears pants made from tire scraps, the tech worker's outfit is as sleek, clean and sterile as a microchip; the livestock wears a vest of goatskin; the lumberman creates an eerie portrait holding his probably self created wooden leg; the grain workers dress is made of natural fiber with scythed stitching. The last of a child miner with its latent Norman Rockwell echoes had me not knowing whether I should laugh or cry.
Call it low couture proletarian. Either way, it's cool style.
So which of these posters is your favorite? Livestock, Fishing, Grain? Write in with your thoughts below the line!
